The Nelson Leafs Autism Awareness Campaign was a big hit on an off the ice as the Hockey Society brought the neurodevelopmental disorder to the forefront during a recent five-game Kootenay International Junior Hockey League home stand at the NDCC Arena.

Another winner was Sam Kitch, who won the autographed jersey by the Vancouver Canucks.

Mallard’s Source for sports would like to salute everyone involved in the campaign with Team of the Week honours.
